This novel was powerful, elegant, poetic, and philosophical. The novel reminds me of 19th Century stereoscopic views: imagery of a vista with two separate views repeated side by side and viewed through a viewfinder blend to create a unique 3 dimensional experience. In this novel spanning 2000 years of Roman History we have 4 lives in 4 different centuries and a fifth voice; a love-sick Devil experiencing slices of layered Time the reader can actually feel and smell the rich fetid moss covered land in the Eternal City; all exquisitely messily wrought ie. human. I love this book! ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
